Whatever business you’re in today, you’re likely to have some dealings with suppliers and clients in other countries. The internet has made the world a smaller place, and it’s as easy to be dealing with a customer overseas as in the next state.
What sometimes lags behind though, is the ability to move funds from one currency to another quickly and efficiently. For most of us, if we need to make an international payment in another currency, we have to go through a middle man – be that the bank’s foreign exchange counter or a foreign exchange broker. Either way, it’s a hassle, whether you have to go down to the bank itself or spend time holding on the phone, waiting to find out what rate you will be offered, and being in a position where you really just have to accept that rate.
Good news, then, that there is another way to make international payments. And the best news is that you cut out the middle man and arrange payments directly, from anywhere that you have internet access.
Companies like HiFX UK have brought foreign currency exchange right up to date – for both individuals and business users. All you need to do to start making international payments is to set up an account with HiFX which takes a matter of minutes.
Once you have an account, it’s easy to organise an international online transfer from HiFX. You can login to get a quote and all you do is put in the amount of currency you want to exchange. The site brings up an instant quote – and you’ll be able to see the exact rate that you’re being offered. If it’s not what you’re looking for, you’re under no obligation to place a trade. You have the freedom to wait for the right exchange rate before you act, and you can even set up your target exchange rates on your account and you’ll receive an alert automatically when that target has been reached. So HiFX takes care of the market watching for you.
Due to the high volume of currencies that HiFX moves every day, their customers can benefit from narrower buy and sell margins and there are no commission charges. HiFX has put its customers in control when it comes to organising international money payments.
